Lincoln Law School is about creating an interesting place for interesting people to learn interesting things. Lincoln is not the place where fresh-out-of-college 23-year-olds go to learn the law. Rather, Lincoln is filled with students of all ages, at all stages in life. People who have lots of life experience to share.
Lincoln’s mission is to make the study of law affordable, and thereby accessible to everyone.
We do that by holding tuition at less than half what it costs to attend other accredited law schools. We do that by allowing some students to attend even if they haven’t finished their bachelor’s degree. Because some people have enough life experience that returning to undergraduate studies just doesn’t make a lot of sense. And because some very promising students are not finishing school because it is simply too expensive.
Why Lincoln Law School?
Lincoln’s professors are practicing lawyers and judges, so we make the law come to life like no online school can. We strive to teach the law in a way that makes it understandable and useful in everyday life.
We tell stories. Lots and lots of stories. (Two children are playing on a pool deck. One falls and breaks his arm. Who must pay his medical bills?)
We solve puzzles. (City A wants more affordable housing for its citizens. What policies may City A legally implement to achieve its goal?)
We talk about everyday issues. (What does all the small print mean in that real estate contract? What happens to my pension if I divorce? Do I have to pay employment taxes for the person who takes care of my elderly mother?)
Lincoln helps inventors get patents and business owners get trademarks. And all the legal work is done for free.
Lincoln also helps engineers, and math and science geeks, learn how to draft their own patents – and how to draft patents for others.
Lincoln helps business owners learn about how the law can be used to their advantage – and can also put them out of business if they aren’t careful.
Lincoln helps mid-career corporate climbers to climb a little higher.
Our graduates are now the heads of corporate contracts and legal departments. People attend Lincoln even if they do not want to be lawyers. Because they learn about every day issues – real estate contracts, divorce law, landlord and tenant rights and responsibilities, immigration rules. These are things that can make a real difference in a person’s legacy, and potentially save a lot of money, headache and heartache.
In other words, Lincoln is for lawyers, but also for business people, and police officers, and teachers, and inventors, and investors, and corporate executives, and… YOU!
